    I didn’t care for it but hubby ate his all. The bread crumbs seem like an afterthought.

    Simple and delicious. Did not have breadcrumbs so used bacon instead

    I can’t get over how amazing this dish was! Was a bit dry, but it was so good, I would have ordered this in a restaurant.

    Pretty unimpressed, definitely needed more to it than 5 ingredients. Maybe good in a pinch if you have nothing else in though.

    Super simple, super delicious. I just used normal breadcrumbs but I used a lot less than the recipe requested.

    Please make sure you use the instructed breadcrumbs. I used regular breadcrumbs and it came out way too thick and tasting like bread

    It was really good ! We used it as a side dish for a tuna steak, it was great ! Maybe add a little more olive oil or use salted butter

    Delicious! I also added artichokes and lemon on top for taste; but the recipe is very tasty as-is! My family requested I make it again for the next two days.

    it was super delicious, and was even better the day after for lunch! Definitely will be a family favorite. The whole family thought it was fantastic. I took some tips from others, and doubled the mushrooms and it was yummy!

    This is a very naughty pasta. So many calories, and I thoroughly enjoyed every single one. I added a little bit of whole milk towards the end of the butter sauce. Not sure if it added much but I felt like it subdued all that butter. I also added a little bit more pasta so I wanted it to be enough liquid to cover the pasta. I love mushrooms so next time I might add more. Also I accidentally used Panko bread crumbs instead of French but it was freaking delish. Tasted gourmet !

    It was super yummy but so fattening. I know I shouldn't be surprised bc I read the ingredients list, but I can't justify 5 stars for 900 calories. Husband definitely wants to make it again, so I may substitute vegan butter maybe?

    Not for me, but my mom really liked it and she never likes anything i make, so seemed to be a success, added some parmesan and cream after reading other comments :)
